Lincoln Downsizes Aldermen
The city of Lincoln voted and agreed to change its ward boundaries.
Lincoln lost over 500 residents during 2000 to 2010. The Census Bureau requires towns to have at least 15,000 citizen in order to have five wards.
Mayor Keith Snyder believes the state closing the Lincoln Developmental Center has to do with the loss of people in town. Aldermen will have to run for re-election again.
There will only be eight spots for aldermen, instead of 10, when the new ward zones go into affect.
